Types of cyclamen and positioning
The cyclamen is a brightly colored winter flower which, thanks to its resistance to cold, lasts for the whole season and even until spring. We distinguish two basic types of cyclamen. The outdoor cyclamen, that is wild, the least common, characterized by small flowers, is suitable for cultivation in gardens, near larger plants that shade it from the sun. This plant blooms in the late summer season. The cyclamen as a vase, on the other hand, it is very common, it has large flowers and shades of color from pure white to dark pink. This type of houseplant needs a lot of light which must not be directed. You should also avoid keeping them near heat sources but in cool rooms, with a temperature between 10 and 18 degrees. It is also necessary to ensure that the plant is not subject to wind blows or drafts.cyclamen pot "width =" 745 "height =" 497 "longdesc =" / apartment-plants / indoor-plants / cyclamen-cura.asp ">
Cyclamen: care and precautions
The care of cyclamens requires that the soil is always sufficiently moist and that water is added only if it becomes dry. Stagnation of water must be absolutely avoided because they can cause the bulb to rot. The water must be poured into the saucer, not in the center of the plant, so that it can absorb what it needs on its own. In the summer the cyclamen does not need much water because it is outside the vegetative period. The fertilizer must be administered every 15-20 days, together with the watering water. Potassium should be added in case the flowering appears difficult. In the spring i cyclamens vegetative activity slows down more and more, which will stop completely in summer. In June, the leaves and dried flowers must be removed immediately to prevent them from rotting the whole plant and favoring the attack of parasites.
